Rolling Stone Boston Bomber Cover Story: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Image Stirs Controversy, Boycotts

• The Huffington Post, By Peter Finocchiaro

Rolling Stone's latest cover is attracting plenty of controversy, thanks to its use of a photograph of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The cover, which features a self-taken portrait of Tsarnaev sporting shaggy hair and a goatee, identifies him simply as "The Bomber," while promising to explain "how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster." The cover story itself was reported over the course of two months by Rolling Stone contributing editor Janet Reitman.
